I came across a picture of one of my more fun projects I had done while living in California. I was a fireman there and was asked to do all the the wood work on a Model T fire engine they had. It was in service from 1917 to 1937 in Lemoore California.

Very nice work. My little guy approves of it as well!

Very nice. I’ve seen some great restoration on woodies before. This engine is great!

What a great project to have been a part of. They must have great respect for your ability to work the wood. What an honor. Great job, congratulations.

Parts of the wheels had to be replaced along with the wood under carriage, dash board and seat. The only two wood parts that could be salvaged was the steering wheel and the knobs on the hose reel. I made the ladders for the engine because they were gone.

Great project!
However it kinda looks more like a Model T.
